Nikki Hornsby

NikkiHornsby.jpg (3292 bytes)I just talked with the Deutschland Country Music HITPARADE man on the phone and they are putting one Nikki Hornsby song "Flying Over Sweet AL" from "JUST WAIT" to start on their charts for an entire month. Then following up with another after that......yes! There is a large German Major Station program director who called me as well who is adding "Money's Worth" as his choice for his listeners because he said "the product is awesomely produced".

The comment was from this conversation was from the Music HITPARADE: Mr. Westerwelle in Lohne GE: the "TOTAL CD MEETS HIS TASTE and a STYLE of the music throughout. The CD IS MUSIC YOU CAN ALWAYS LISTEN TO... unlike others where you can get tired of hearing after awhile." Guess that "Just Wait" is timeless:) and I am going to keep working hard too since I KNOW this is an awesome recorded product as Marty & I spend hours without a break & collaborated to the seconds on it before I came to Europe for it's test marketing.

This timeless acceptance has been proven after test marketing results so independently with the consumer of all ages for this last year:

Thank God, RADIO EUROPE is giving the music airtime...yes!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know I've gotta hang on because it's a rough but an honest long ride:) costing me a great deal financially but priceless in return for the music..... as much as I miss my country (and people from there) the music has a reason & purpose so very true as the true inherited talent from both sides of my family I am responsible to carry forward.

God bless everyone for believing in my music and don't give up!

I've got an upcoming two hour interview LIVE in a few months too near the largest Country Music Fest in Central Europe. Hope by then all of Europe will be playing one song or another. We'll keep movin it forward:)....thanks to a man like Walter Fuchs and his referrals that have kept my hopes in radio alive.

A review by Dan Michel
DJ and Program Director WPMB and WKRV-FM, Vandalia, Illinois

Jack-Misty-bw.jpg (4415 bytes)"'Molasses in the Moonlight'...the remix!...I love it! ... a fuller, richer sound for one of my favorite Jack and Misty songs. The album version has been available for years, but this new version is even better, and very radio friendly. If I need a smile...all I need is 'Molasses in the Moonlight'.Thanks, Jack and Misty!"

Thank YOU, Dan!

My songs are bipolar... either way upbeat... often to the point of slapstick comedy, or way down in the dumps.

I have tried to explain this to people who have asked, but I never got it quite right. Let me try again.

I've been in some hopeless places, and humor was my defense against fear and depression. I guess that shows up in my funny material.

When I write the real downers, I’m mostly writing from personal experience, and I’d like to think I’m speaking for the people
who are currently living in those little hells. Maybe my words can make them think about getting out.

Sometimes we live in mind prisons that look real, but maybe we can break out if we’re not afraid to take a chance.
Leaving the rut we're used to is seldom easy. Prisoners can get attached to their cells.

Here’s a song I wrote about a couple who are going through the pain of a big life change.

Listen to the song here:


(He sings)
Second Tuesday in December,
icy rain is falling down
I took the bus out to the city line,
and then I watched it turn around.
Now as I walk down past the junkyard
by the closed-up drive-in show
I realize that really leaving
is the only way I'll ever go.

(She sings)
It was the seventh of September,
nineteen hundred sixty nine
95 degrees and rising,
we crossed the Pennsylvania line.
We paid a judge our last ten dollars
to bless us with his legal seal.
I guess that putting love on paper
doesn't always make it real

Second Tuesday in December,
icy rain is coming down.
All the snow that's left from Monday
lies gray and frozen on the ground
It's hard to understand this feeling
that a part of me is gone
Second Tuesday in December...
Looks like winter's coming on.

Jaime Beaver

JaimeBeaver.jpg (5470 bytes)Here is the latest news on Jaime. I moved her to Dallas, Texas, we arrived on Monday, January 9th, I will stay with her for 4-6 weeks to help her get settled.

We went to a professional music seminar yesterday for 5 hours and met some very important people in the music industry; Marty Rendleman who managed LeAnn Rimes for three years when she first got started, Felicia Culotta, Britney Spears personal assistant and Chris Harrison, host of the hit show The Bachelor. We will be meeting Marty for lunch in a couple weeks, she will be out of town next week. We gave them all Jaime's Artist Package and she got an opportunity to sing a song, say a prayer.

At the end of this month we will be going to Nashville, TN, Jaime is recording a duet with Troy Cook Jr. which should get lots of radio airplay at least overseas.

You can now purchase Jaime's music at the Online Stores....Wal-Mart & Best Buy, her music was selected along with Erin Hay which is very exciting. You can go to Jaime's web site at www.jaimebeaver.com and under the music section & links find the Wal-Mart & Best Buy sites. This is a major accomplishment because it is very hard to get into these facilities. Thanks to Derek at CD Baby for making that happen.

Checkout Jaime's new message board at her site and leave her a message. Also, you can now watch a video of Jaime on the site.

We are looking for bookings, call Gary Bradshaw at 1-602-889-8023

Musicians Wanted

I'm located in Dallas, Texas and I’m looking for experienced and serious musicians for my band. I will need a drummer, keyboard player, bass player, steel, electric & acoustic guitar players and a fiddle player. If you play more than one instrument that would be great because we would like to keep the band at five members in the beginning.

If you are interested please email me at lbeaver@csinet.net and leave your contact information. Remember, I’m serious about my music & career and I want to take it to the next level.

Only contact me if you are serious about your music career.

Jaime Beaver

We recently made a change on the host of Jaime's web site and we forgot to save the old guestbook before we made the switch. If you get a chance, please stop by the web site at: www.jaimebeaver.com and sign the new guestbook.

Greetings From Nashville Line Dancers Aalen

I like your homepage. It’s great ,many informations.

The Nashville Line Dancers Aalen (NLDA) have been performing this dance style with great enthusiasm already for several years. The group performs more than 150 dances of the category Country Line Dance and is regarded as one of Germany’s top Show Line Dancers. Elvis songs are presented in the best Line Dance fashion.

‘’Tribute To The King Of Music & Viva Las Vegas Dance Show’’ – their dance show is viewed as unique in Germany. They also act as background dancers in the show of the great, internationally well known Elvis double Jack Favor, who is also known as ‘’Eifel-Elvis’’,

‘’ the best Elvis since Elvis ’’.

Their many performances speak for themselves: NLDA is Line Dance Show at it’s best.

NLDA targets at having Line Dance (which originally supported only Country and Western Music) mingled with other music styles such as Elvis music, pop music etc.

Thus Line Dance shall be opened to a broader audience and it shall be shown to the public, how divers this dance style with nowadays more than 4000 different dances can be.

If you like, you can sign our guestbook.

Country Cuts with Roger Ryan

JamesQuinn1.jpg (4458 bytes)Ireland’s newest country singing star James Quinn has released his long awaited second album.

‘Talkin’ To The Wrong Man’ is a tasty selection of country standards such as Talk Back Trembling Lips and No One Will ever Know and new songs like Childhood Memories and The Shores Of Jordan form the pen of Iris De Ment.

Also included are Irish songs Home Away From Home and the haunting Noreen Bawn, and a beautifully sung duet with his dad Brendan, How’s The World Treating You ?.

The young Magherafelt man has come a long way since hitting the road some eighteen months ago, picking up two prestigious awards as best newcomer for 2004 and starring in TG4’s Glor Tire TV show, which was broadcast on Oct12th, and receiving the award for Band of the year 2004 at the Northern Nashville Country Club in Scotland, which is the U K’s premier country club

James and his fabulous band, which includes his dad Brendan on lead guitar and his brother on drums, will be doing a series of shows around Ireland to promote the new CD. The shows will include guest artistes and some local dates are, Sat 17th Dec in Kade's Kounty Glenville and Killarney Heights Hotel on Sun 18th Dec.


As we enter December and the final push for Christmas sales of music DVD's we see the charts in the UK dominated by Irish artists - Nos. 1,2 and 4 with only the Live 8 concert breaking up a clean sweep. Not only have the Irish stormed the charts, but with very differing musical styles :-

No.1 - DANIEL O'DONNELL - The Rock'n'Roll Tour
No.2 - WESTLIFE - The Number Ones Tour
No.4 - U2 - Vertigo 2005 - Live from Chicago

At the very top of the charts is the King of Easy Listening, Daniel O'Donnell, with a DVD of his recent rock'n'roll concert tour. Not content with reaching the No.1 slot Daniel has done it the hard way and knocked major boy-band Westlife from it's top slot.

The Rock'n'Roll Tour is great entertainment. It features over 2 and a half hours of wonderful nostalgia from the 50's and 60's with a host of colourful young dancers, a full size Cadillac and an American diner on-stage as part of the imaginative stage set. And then of course there's yer man himself strutting his stuff with a massive 43 tracks, singing great ballads like Words and Wonderful Tonight as well as rock numbers That'll Be The Day and Jailhouse Rock.

The fact that Daniel is able to squeeze such massive acts as Westlife and U2 into a supporting role may surprise a lot of people, but it really shouldn't. In the recent Channel 4 Hall of Fame series Daniel was comfortably in the Top 50 "artists of the century", standing out as the beacon of easy listening amongst the likes of Robbie Williams, Madonna, Oasis and Coldplay of the current crop of stars. He is after all the only artist to feature in the UK album charts each of the last 18 years and this is his third No.1 music video in as many years.

Donal Gill has started a new bluegrass radio show here in Cork. He is a first-year student in UCC and pitched the possibility of presenting a bluegrass show to College Campus Radio. At first they offered him a half-hour slot, but recently they have extended this to a one-hour show. He has received good feedback and it is great to know that young students, and the general public, are getting a chance to hear a style of music that is broadly ignored by broadcasters in Ireland. The programme is called 'Rawhide' and at present goes out every Wednesday at 11.00 a.m. until noon on 97.4FM. Be sure to tune in if you live in Cork or are just passing through. Donal trained in presenting radio shows on 'Bluegrass & Beyond', a one-and-a-half-hour show on CUHFM, and provides excellent backup when Kevin Gill is unable to man this show. As a musician, Donal plays mandolin and guitar; he brings a good insight and understanding of bluegrass music and presents a very informative and exciting show. Long may it last.

This week we are pleased to bring you news of a new country music venue in Cork City.The Deanrock in Togher have announced plans to run country music every Thursday night and will feature all of the top names on the Irish country music scene. Starting off on 9th Feb. with Robert Mizzell and His band, this will be followed up by, 16th Feb. Louise Morrisey, 23rd Feb. Sean Loughrey, 2nd March Larry Cunningham, 9th March Gene Stuart, Logue & McCool & Off The Cuff Country Band, 16th March Paddy O Brien and His Band, 23rd March Patirck Feeney and Band, 30th March Jimmy Buckley and Band, 6th April 'The Exciting' Fhiona Ennis plus Thomas Maguire and Band. That certainly is a fantastic lineup of bands, many of whom have never played in Cork before. Local country music fans have long been complaining about the lack of a good venue featuring country music and this news is certainly a great Christmas present for all country fans, and one that deserves support.
Admission will be just €10.00, and cocktail sausages, tea and coffee will also be served. Each show will kick off with a 'country roadshow' and Dancing will be from 9.15 to 12.15am.
TONY STEVENS and His Band will also be performing at The Deanrock in Togher for 'Womens Little Christmas' on Jan 6th next and again admission will be just €10.00.

Country Music Festivals & Weekends.

Country Music Festivals and weekend breaks are now proving very popular with Irish fans. Nowadays you can choose to spend a weeknd at an hotel at home or travel for a week or so to the States, mainly Nashville, or you may decide to do both. The choice is yours and there are lots of them. If you haven't yet decided on your annual break, then the following list of possible destinations and events, may be of interest to you.

On the Irish scene the first weekend is the Annual Country Music Festival at the Brandon Hotel in Tralee, Co.Kerry, which takes place over the weekend of January 13th, 14th, and 15th. This year will mark the 8th year of this popular festival by the Billy Morrissey Management and will again have a top class lineup of talent consisting of Louise Morrissey, Michael English, John Hogan, John Mc Nicholl, Trudi Lalor, Shawn Cuddy, Johnny Carroll & Peter Bourke and Tom Healy. The entire weekend on offer consists of accommodation, food, use of leisure centre and of course lots of entertainment. Full details of cost etc from 062-63773.

Mike Denver has quickly established himself as one of the top acts on the Irish country scene and you can join Mike for an entire weekend at Allingham Arms Hotel, Bundoran, Co.Donegal, from Feb. 10th to 13th.
A choice of weekend packages is available and you can get all details by phoning 07198-41075.

If you fancy spending the Valentine's weekend in a hotel, then the Clarion Hotel, Liffey Valley, Dublin, may just have the package you're looking for. From Feb. 16th to 18th, Hugh O'Brien is presenting a Valentines Country Music Festival, and has lined up some of the top Irish entertainers to perform for you over the weekend.
The impressive list is headed up by Robert Mizzell and Mike Denver, and also includes T.R.Dalls, Gene Stuart, Colette Cavanagh, Marty Daniels, Justin Mc Gurk, The Virginian Marie Boyle, Martin Cuff, Off The Cuff Band, Logue & Mc Cool and a Country Music Disco. Apart from the excellent accomodation and entertainment, I need hardly remind you that the the Liffey Valley Shopping Centre is a mere 5 minutes away from the hotel. Ring 021-4504841 and 087-6859895 for full details.

Over the weekend of March 3rd to March 5th, the Breaffy House Hotel, Castlebar, Co. Mayo, promises to give you the greatest weekend of the year with a lineup of talent that any promoter would be proud to present. Ireland's top attraction Declan Nerney heads up the impressive list which also boasts The Bards, Mike Denver, Patrick Feeney, T.R.Dallas, Brendan Grace, and adding an international flavour, the American Drifters. A package including 2 nights dinner, B&b and all entertainment is on offer and you can get details from 09066-34663.

If you fancy some craic and sun for the St.Patrick's weekend (March 17th) then Enjoy Travel may have just the tonic for you.

Why You Have To “Promote” Your Music To Radio

Now that you have taken the time to write, record and make a great record, you must put together a viable plan of action with respect to obtaining airplay if you hope to have any reasonable chance of success. One of the most misunderstood facts of marketing a record is how and why you must promote it to radio. It is important to understand that radio is not going to play your music NO MATTER HOW GOOD IT IS unless you MARKET IT TO THEM. You have to get your music to the decision makers at radio.

The major record labels have been using digital delivery very successfully now for a couple of years. The new Coldplay and Dave Matthews singles were delivered digitally. In fact, several of the major label groups will be making announcements very soon regarding the fact that they will no longer be sending out promotional CD copies. Digital delivery has proven to be much more cost effective and efficient.

Visit www.AirPlayDirect.com today and see how easy it is to deliver your music to thousands of Program Directors and DJs around the globe… free of charge.

AirPlay Direct's New Digital Delivery System - By Anne Freeman

We've all been there on one side of the equation or the other: independent artists or their labels stuffing padded envelopes with CDs and cover letters, applying labels, stamps, or all of those time-consuming Customs=CN 22 Sender's Declaration forms for overseas mailings. Hoping we have the correct address for that DJ who promised to add track 2 to the playlist ... Rushing to make the post office in time, standing in line, shelling out yet gobs more money ... Making those follow-up phone calls (spending yet more money), hoping the CD arrived unharmed (if not, another mailing and yet more money!) Hoping the program hosts plays the song we're pushing - or any song at all, for that matter! Or, as a program host, being inundated with unsolicited CDs, so much so that we have trouble finding the ones we actually want ... searching for the correct track, burning the track, answering artists' phone calls, burning up endless time, time, time ...
Airplay Direct is a new digital delivery system for artists and record labels to safely, securely, efficiently, and cost-effectively deliver their music directly to radio stations around the world. The scene I just described above disappears when AirPlay Direct becomes your chosen method of distributing tracks to radio programs, or when you use AirPlay Direct as your method of previewing and securing tracks for your radio program. Co-founded by Robert Weingartz and R.W. Shamy, Jr. in the spring of 2005, AirPlay Direct services launch on September 5, 2005. In the following MusicDish interview with AirPlay Direct CEO Robert Weingartz, we'll learn more about how this new service will impact artists, labels, and radio programmers:

[The Aspiring Songwriter] First, some general questions about AirPlay Direct, Robert. Why did you found AirPlay Direct?

Robert Weingartz - Why ... I own an indie record label, and I was trying to find a more efficient and cost effective way to deliver music by my artists to radio programmers globally. I am also partnered in an Internet radio station, and our program director was looking for an easier way of receiving music more efficiently and hassle free. AirPlay Direct was created to make the entire radio promotion process more efficient and cost effective for all involved.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] AirPlay Direct uses a digital file transfer system that was developed to streamline radio promotion activities. Tell us about the AirPlay Direct system.

Robert Weingartz - Quite simply, we use the power of the Internet to digitally deliver files globally, instead of artists and labels having to go through the time and expense of putting together costly artist packages and using the Post Office. We are a one-stop shop for radio programmers to visit, preview, and then download new music of all genres.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] I am an artist or record label promoter. What does AirPlay Direct look like from my end? How do I start? What are my costs?

Robert Weingartz - For a limited time, AirPlay Direct has a "Special Introductory Offer" that allows artists and labels to register with AirPlay Direct, build a mini web site, and post three tracks ABSOLUTELY FREE! All they need to do is visit the AirPlay Direct site, register, and then send their CD to our Music Upload Centre and we handle the conversion and upload of their music, FREE OF CHARGE! Additional tracks can be posted for the modest fee of $10 a track.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] What happens to my songs once I upload them to my AirPlay Direct account? How do my tracks get to appropriate radio stations and program directors and hosts?

Robert Weingartz - Once your tracks have been uploaded by our team, artists and labels can post photos, bio, contact information, etc., to their mini web site and they are ready to go. Keep in mind that AirPlay Direct is a digital delivery system, not a radio promotions firm. The very necessary work of radio promotions needs to be done by the artist, the label, or their radio promotions firm. They must contact radio programmers via e-mail and the phone and inform them that their "broadcast quality" tracks are being delivered via a new digital delivery system, AirPlay Direct, and are available for preview and download, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You need to go through the exact same radio promotion process as if you sent your artist package via the Post Office.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] I am a radio program director. What does Airplay Direct look like from my end? How do I start? What are my costs?

Robert Weingartz - AirPlay Direct is a FREE service for all program directors and radio stations globally. All they need to do is visit the AirPlay Direct site and register. One of our team members will contact them to verify their information and a secure password will be issued.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] How do I get the tracks I select onto my playlist?

Robert Weingartz - Once a program director has registered, been approved, and issued a secure password, they just go to AirPlay Direct to preview and download broadcast quality tracks to the station's hard drive. They can search our database by artist, song title, album title, record label or genre; preview music and artist info; and then download the tracks they would like to add to the station's playlist.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] Robert, let's talk a bit about technology. What specs must artists and labels have to upload tracks to the AirPlay Direct Services, if any? And for radio stations to download tracks?

Robert Weingartz - There is no special software or hardware needed by the artists, labels, or radio stations. AirPlay Direct's submission process was designed to make it very easy for our artist and label members. To ensure our broadcast quality and customer service standards are met, we handle the conversion and upload of your tracks FREE OF CHARGE. Just register as a user and then send your CD and contact information to AirPlay Direct; we take care of the rest.

Radio programmers can rest assured that AirPlay Direct's submission process delivers all available music in a consistent broadcast quality format. We handle the conversion internally to ensure our rigid quality standards are met. All posted tracks are only available for download in a 320 kbps MP3 broadcast quality format.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] What security assurances can you give to artists, labels, program hosts, and radio stations using AirPlay Direct?

Robert Weingartz - AirPlay Direct delivers your valuable music assets quickly and securely by:
* Screening and verifying all radio member applicants;
* Password protected downloads;
* Limiting and monitoring the number of downloads (2) of each track; and,
* Utilizing IP address tracking software that constantly monitors who enters the site and who downloads your music.
AirPlay Direct eliminates your music getting lost in the mail or going to the wrong person ... It is tracked! The bottom line, your music is more secure with us than it is if you are mailing out packages currently.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] Robert, what types of radio stations does AirPlay Direct serve, including format and delivery (land, Internet, satellite)?

Robert Weingartz - AirPlay Direct provides our services FREE OF CHARGE to all terrestrial, satellite, and Internet radio stations. All music formats and genres of music are accepted and range from rock to rap to country to comedy to children's songs.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] How do you verify that they are "real" radio stations, instead of someone trying to obtain free music illegally?

Robert Weingartz - AirPlay Direct's radio verification process includes an Internet search and a phone call to verify all appropriate information.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] Can individual program hosts sign up for services, or can only radio owners or program directors do so? What about amateur web radio program hosts, such as those webcasting through services like Live365? Can they register for AirPlay Direct services?

Robert Weingartz - Yes, all individual DJs and program hosts can sign up as members. Remember, AirPlay Direct provides our services FREE OF CHARGE to all terrestrial, satellite, and Internet radio stations, and all formats and genres.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] Where do you anticipate your growth?

Robert Weingartz - With respect to growth, AirPlay Direct is currently delivering syndicated radio programming and is aggressively exploring digital delivery across many varied industries.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] Does AirPlay Direct have a rating system for radio stations of what might be considered "the best" or "the most popular" tracks?

Robert Weingartz - AirPlay Direct has a cross-genre "Top 100" downloads chart. In the near future we will also make available download charts that are genre and territory specific (states, countries, etc.)

[The Aspiring Songwriter] How do you envision AirPlay Direct will fill artists' and labels' radio promotion needs? For example, can they structure releases to promote singles? Can they release entire albums?

Robert Weingartz - With AirPlay Direct you can release singles, your entire album, or your whole catalogue. All your tracks can be uploaded and then made available as singles, as needed.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] Does AirPlay Direct permit videos to be bundled with tracks for web radio?

Robert Weingartz - No, currently AirPlay Direct does not offer a service to deliver video. We are however looking at all digital delivery opportunities across varied industries.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] Although using AirPlay Direct would provide an immediate cost savings to artists and labels by reducing the need to send physical product to radio stations and program hosts, what percentage of radio stations accept digital files, say, in the U.S., including commercial and noncommercial stations?

Robert Weingartz - All of the major North American broadcast companies (Clear Channel, Infinity Broadcasting, etc.) as well as a significant number of secondary market stations currently use digital delivery as their primary delivery method. Keep in mind that with the exception of a very small minority of small stations, radio broadcasts music from their station hard drives, not a CD player. So whether they download the music from AirPlay Direct or upload it from an artist's CD, it still ends up on the station's hard drive for broadcast.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] How about the European and Southeast Asia radio markets, which are dominated by numerous small, community-based radio stations?

Robert Weingartz - The same is true for the international market place. Given the fact that most international stations are starving for new content (most independent artists and labels cannot afford to fully service the global marketplace); they have been very receptive to and have rapidly embraced digital delivery.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] What tracking information and activity reports are given to the artist and labels?

Robert Weingartz - AirPlay Direct offers a weekly download tracking report that details who downloaded your music and when.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] Can artists, labels, and radio stations interact via AirPlay Direct?

Robert Weingartz - Yes, artists and labels can post all of their current contact information and artist related info on their mini website, so that stations may contact them directly.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] Does Airplay Direct get involved in any way with reporting to performing rights organizations or other royalty collection agencies?

Robert Weingartz - AirPlay Direct is a digital delivery service and does not get involved in reporting or collections.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] How is AirPlay Direct being promoted to the industry?

Robert Weingartz - AirPlay Direct is working with a team of professional industry firms that specialize in all forms of marketing and media, which include the Internet, print, radio, and industry tradeshows.

[The Aspiring Songwriter] Tell us a little more about AirPlay Direct's special promotion to encourage artists, labels, and radio stations to sign up.

Robert Weingartz - Currently, for a limited time, AirPlay Direct is extending a special offer to all artists and labels worldwide to try this revolutionary new service absolutely free! They can create a mini-web site and post three songs at no cost to them! AirPlay Direct will even handle the conversion and upload of their broadcast quality music tracks free of charge!
Artists and labels can start saving time and money today and gain valuable global exposure as never before. This offer is good for a limited time, so register today and deliver your broadcast quality tracks to radio programmers around the world ... absolutely free!

[The Aspiring Songwriter] Thanks, Robert, for talking with us about AirPlay Direct.

Secures ‘Final Piece Of The Puzzle' With The Appointment Of
Stacey Nichols As West Coast Regional Manager
* * *
Recently Launched Label With Veteran Staff Will Host Its Debut Event
At CRS 37 In Nashville With Performances By Newly Signed Artists
Emerson Drive And Newcomer Lindsey Grant

Midas Nashville National Director of Promotion Bob Reeves is pleased to announce the appointment of veteran promotion director Stacey Nichols to the position of West Coast Regional Manager—a choice he believes secures the “final piece of the puzzle” for the label and perfectly caps its powerful team of regional managers.

“With Stacey on board, we are a family completed!” says Reeves, who is quickly becoming known to the industry as “Goldfinger.” “Stacey comes to us from a team with unparalleled recent success and immediately injects this new brood with fresh and exciting ideas along with an incredible passion for our music. I have no doubt that Stacey’s exactly what we’ve been looking for…a new star in the field of radio promotion.”

Nichols will begin working with Midas Nashville on February 1, after completing her duties through the January 30 chart with Lyric Street, for whom she has served as Promotion Coordinator. Prior to that position, she was a promotion director at KQFC in Boise, ID. Nichols will work from Midas’ offices in Nashville for several months before relocating out West, possibly to Salt Lake City.

In addition to Reeves, who handles the Northeast territory in addition to his duties as National Director of Promotion, Midas Nashville’s talented regional promotion roster includes Shari Roth (Midwest), Clay Henderson (Southeast) and Mike Severson (Southwest). Mary Befera serves as Associate Director of Promotion for the label.

After introducing the industry to its growing staff, Midas Nashville’s debut event at CRS (Country Radio Seminar) 37 in February will feature performances by the label’s first two signed artists, veteran country hitmakers Emerson Drive—whose first single for the label will release to radio that month—and exciting newcomer Lindsey Grant.

Midas Records Nashville can be reached at 1108 16th Avenue South, Nashville, TN 37212. Phone: (615) 401-6567
